Treble delight

‘They'll still be talking about it in 100 years’

Not one Bayern fan or player really wanted to leave Berlin Olympic Stadium on Saturday night, as they sang, danced and chanted. Bastian Schweinsteiger grabbed a megaphone, the team started a conga, Jupp Heynckes was hoisted high. Everyone knew history had been made. Everyone knew they were celebrating a potentially unique achievement in the story of German football. All hail treble-winning Bayern!

“Franz Beckenbauer and Günter Netzer are here, and they won everything. But no-one's won the treble before," Karl-Heinz Rummenigge proudly declared at the post-match banquet, hosted by Deutsche Telekom in the German capital. FCB defeated VfB Stuttgart 3-2 in the DFB Cup final, “and I want to say thanks," the chairman continued, “what we've achieved probably hasn't completely sunk in yet."
